Start your review of Astronautics: The Physics of Space Flight
Pedro Enguita
A marterpiece of scientific divulgation, covering almost every single aspect of physics of spaceflight. The lecture was arid many times, full of demostrations that are of little use, and pages and pages of formulas that require detailed attention in order to get the meaning of them. Although the book has many useful remarks that help the reader to extract the meaning in all this endless ocean of mathematics, a little more emphasis would help the non-expert reader (as myself).
